Re: Possible to upgrade with desktop cd?
I'm 98% sure you can't upgrade from any live cd. I upgraded a machine from karmic to lucid earlier this week and can say you don't have to worry about using up your bandwidth. It took about 11 hours to upgrade 1764 packages; the highest speed I saw was around 120 kb/s, most of the time it was dialup speed. Painfully slow.
